The Long Bow is an archery weapon found in Skyrim.


The Long Bow is the lowest tier bow available. It's quite basic in appearance and follows a straight bow design. It's the lightest bow available, thus its draw speed's the fastest, but it also deals the least base damage. It is the only type of bow in the game that does not vibrate in the Dragonborn's hand when shot.


This bow is fairly common and can be found in many places, including blacksmiths and bandit camps.


The Long Bow can be upgraded with a piece of firewood at a grindstone, however it does not benefit from any smithing perks. This means that the weapon cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the Smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by using enchanted items and/or blacksmithing potions to fortify smithing.
